The field of Machine Learning has rapidly advanced in recent years due to the increase in computational power and wider availability of data. Machine Learning (ML) is a subfield of Artificial Intelligence (AI) that involves the use of statistical methods and algorithms to enable computer systems to learn from and make predictions or decisions on data. In many ways, ML is deeply connected with statistical methodology as it involves the use of statistical concepts such as regression, Bayes, and random variables, among others. One of the main areas of intersection between Machine Learning and Statistics is in the use of predictive models. Predictive modelling is the process of using data to make predictions or identify patterns or trends. This involves the use of statistical models to identify the relationships between variables and predict outcomes based on those relationships. Machine Learning techniques such as linear regression, decision trees, and neural networks often use similar statistical models to identify relationships between inputs and outputs for prediction. Another area of intersection between Machine Learning and Statistics is in the use of hypothesis testing. Hypothesis testing is a statistical method that is used to draw conclusions about a population based on sample data. This involves formulating a null hypothesis, which is the assumption that there is no significant difference between the sample data and the larger population, and then testing this hypothesis using statistical tests such as t-tests or ANOVA. Machine Learning models often use similar techniques to test hypotheses and validate model assumptions.
Bayesian methods are another area where Machine Learning intersects with Statistical Methodology. Bayesian methods are a set of techniques for statistical inference and prediction, which are based on Bayes' theorem. In Bayesian inference, prior knowledge and beliefs are used to make predictions, and these predictions are updated as more data is collected. In Machine Learning, Bayesian methods are often used in predictive modeling tasks, where they are used to estimate model parameters and make predictions based on those estimates. Finally, Machine Learning and Statistics intersect in the area of experimental design. Experimental design is the process of optimizing the design of an experiment to maximize the information gained from the data collected. In Machine Learning, experimental design is often used to optimize model performance by choosing the best inputs and tuning hyper parameters for the model. Statistical methods such as factorial designs and response surface methodology can be used to achieve optimal experimental designs.
